Meet The Top First-Year MBAs From India


Mohnish Zaveri 

New York University, Stern School of Business

Describe yourself in 15 words or less: Fun-loving, curious, optimist, travel enthusiast

Hometown: Mumbai, India

Fun Fact About Yourself: Big astronomy buff!

Undergraduate School and Major: Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay Major: Chemical Engineering

Employers and Job Titles Since Graduation: I started working with a boutique consulting firm in the financial services area. I worked there for two years across Mumbai and Singapore. Later, I moved to a Fortune 1000 company in the Financial Technology area focusing on investment management clients.

Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: Helping a major Central Bank in South East Asia to implement a market-wide regulation.

Looking back on your experience, what advice would you give to future business school applicants? Try to get the GMAT out of the way as early as possible. The business school application process requires a lot of introspection, both on personal and professional fronts. Bring out the characteristics that define ‘you’ and try to leverage on your strengths.Each person is unique and this should show through your essays.

What led you to choose this program for your full-time MBA? Through my work experience, I had decided that I wanted to pursue a career in the financial services area. Getting my MBA is an opportunity to explore my interests further.  I wanted the ‘big city’ experience where I could meet and connect with people from different industries with ease. I visited Stern and interviewed on campus and instantly fell in love with the location. I was really able to connect with students and alums. And being offered a Named Faculty Scholarship sealed the deal for me.

Tell us about your dream job or dream employer at this point in your life? Post MBA, I want to work in asset management on the investment side.

What would you like your business school peers to say about you after you graduate from this program? The MBA is as much a personal endeavor for me as it is professional. I look forward to making life-long connections and learning from my classmates. After the program, I would like to be remembered as someone who balanced well the academic rigor of an MBA and the many attractions of NYC.
